There are exciting new opportunities for employment in Australia’s rapidly growing defence industry among the thousands of small, medium and Prime companies.
The South Australian Government is making it easier for university students to enter a career in the state’s growing defence industry with the Premier’s Defence Industry Scholarship.
Eligible students can earn a scholarship to support a research or work placement with a South Australian defence industry host company.
A grant of up to $10,000 will be made available to each student for the duration of the placement and can be used to support expenses associated with your placement.
If you are currently in a placement as part of your degree, please contact Ai Group prior to applying.
To complete your application, you will require:
Applications for students already undertaking a placement will not be considered, only applications for placements yet to commence.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation before applying.
A placement where an employment relationship exists or is a paid internship will not be considered for a scholarship.
The placement must be credit-bearing or contribute towards the completion of the degree in which you are enrolled, like a mandatory work placement.
At the conclusion of your placement, having fulfilled the required number of hours of learning, you may enter a direct employment relationship with the company.
The scholarship is only paid for the duration of your work learning placement, as agreed between your university and host company.
Students must be engaged in meaningful learning and not in productive work, in accordance with Fair Work rules.
Placements must be located in South Australia, with an eligible host company in South Australia’s defence industry.
The Office of the Fair Work Ombudsman has produced a fact sheet for students undertaking work learning placements with a host company.
